Exit is a gripping survival- horror thriller directed by Peter Thompson and released in 2011. The movie follows a group of friends who, after a night of partying, find themselves trapped in an underground parking lot with no way to escape. As they try to find a way out, they start to realise that they are not alone and that they are being hunted by something sinister.

The story begins with the introduction of the main characters; Alex (Kylie Trounson), her boyfriend Brian (Michael Finney), her best friend Jess (Hannah Moore) and her friend Cristian (Chris Forsythe). They decide to attend a rave party organised in an underground parking lot, despite Jess’s hesitancy. The film opens with a vibrant party scene, with drinks and music flowing in abundance. But things soon take a turn for the worse when the group decides to leave and find that all the exits are locked, trapping them within the parking lot.

The group soon comes to the realisation that they are not alone in the parking lot. The presence of an unknown entity starts to become evident, and they are being hunted. As the night wears on and the tension increases, the friends find themselves turning on each other, with arguments and resentment coming to the surface. As they search for a way out, they find themselves facing unimaginable horrors and fighting for their survival.

The plot of the movie is simple, and it serves the purpose of creating a claustrophobic and tense atmosphere that keeps the viewer engaged throughout. The characters are well developed, and their relationships and personalities are believable. The tension between them builds slowly but steadily, and as the situation starts to become dire, the tensions boil over.

The cinematography and special effects used in the film create an eerie and unsettling atmosphere. The movie is dark and gloomy without feeling too contrived or over the top, and the camera angles and lighting add to the feeling of confinement.

The film also features a talented cast who bring their characters to life. Kylie Trounson delivers a strong performance as Alex, the main protagonist, who is quick to take charge of the situation. She is brave and resourceful, and her character serves as a relatable anchor for the audience. Michael Finney's portrayal of Brian, Alex’s boyfriend, is also commendable. His playful nature and unrelenting optimism provide a brief respite from the ever-increasing tension.

However, the standout performance comes from Hannah Moore as Jess. Jess is sceptical of the party from the beginning and is the first to start sensing the danger they are all in. As the film progresses, she becomes more and more detached from the group, and her sense of hopelessness is palpable. Hannah Moore gives an emotionally nuanced performance, and her portrayal of Jess is both engaging and haunting.

One of the film's best aspects is how it paces its scares. Exit is not a jump-scare heavy movie, but the tension and dread build slowly, leading to some truly terrifying moments. The sound design is excellent, with the subtle use of background music adding to the unsettling feeling that permeates throughout the movie.

Overall, Exit is a highly effective horror movie that keeps its viewers engaged till the end. Despite its simple plot, the film manages to create a claustrophobic and terrifying atmosphere that keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat. The performances are impressive, and the use of cinematography and special effects add to the unsettling feeling that the film hopes to achieve. Exit is a must-watch for horror movie enthusiasts, as it provides an excellent example of how even a low-budget film can create genuine scares and memorable performances.

Exit is a 2011 art house & international movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.3.
